Poshmark

Have you heard of Poshmark? Maybe you’ve seen the sponsored ads on Facebook? A connection on Instagram suggested I look on Ebay or Poshmark to find a sold-out top she took a photo of, and since I was on a buying spree, I figured I’d check it out.

I now realize this was a mistake as I’m completely obsessed.  Not only is Poshmark a website, but it’s an app, too, so I have the pleasure of constantly checking my phone to find goodies.  Oh dear…

Essentially, Poshmark is a place where users can sell their clothes, shoes and accessories for [mostly] deeply discounted prices. And some sellers are wiling to negotiate prices, especially if you “bundle” multiple items from their closet together to buy in one transaction, and some are even willing to trade if they like anything you’re selling. You don’t have to be a seller to be a buyer, though, which is great.  Makes me feel like a closet stalker without having to open the doors of mine to anyone…(not that you actually take photos of your closet….gosh, can you imagine? ugh.)

I’ve found some great items during my hunt for all things vintage and J.Crew, and if they were in my size, let me tell you — I’d snatch these up in a heartbeat!

Poshmark Flats Roundup StickGirlJAM

1 | Glitzy vintage gold flats. If only they were bigger…sigh.
2| Sweet white oxfords with dainty cutouts.
3| Persimmon patent bow flats, perfect for summer!
4| Everyday brown loafers (they look so comfy!).

Other fun finds:

This amazing paisley J.Crew shift dress. So lovely!

Kudos to the lucky lady who scored these fierce leopard print Stuart Weitzman stilletos for $40. That man, Stuart, really knows how to make a shoe!

And, try not to be completely devastated when you stumble across something that’s impossibly awesome but already sold. As I was when I saw this dress.  Waaah!

If you’re a bride-to-be and happen to be a size 6, how about this delicate dress for a rehearsal dinner or shower?  So chic!

And, I’ve also made some purchases I’m thrilled about…

  • An Anthropologie dress for an upcoming wedding ($20!)
  • A pair of woven flats that I’d been swooning over (you know me, grandma chic style and all…$7!)
  • And, my favorite, a darling J.Crew blazer…I mean seriously, check out these elbow patches! I die! ($30 and I’ll need to pay to have it taken in a bit)

Usually I’m not a great negotiator or haggler but since it’s pretty much the norm on here, I’ve been giving it a go.  Especially if the item has been listed for a few months. I find the trick is asking for a little less than what you’re actually willing to pay and usually you’ll end up about where you planned. Don’t be a jerk and offer ridiculously low prices for awesome stuff, though, okay?  That’s just rude.

Alright then, friends, happy shopping!
